Kidnapped teen withdrawn, jittery, family says

Kidnapped teen withdrawn, jittery, family says

Federal authorities have asked the courts to deny bond for Tad Cummins, the Tennessee teacher accused of kidnapping his 15-year-old student, and move him to the Middle District of Tennessee while he awaits trial.

Acting U.S. attorney Jack Smith said his office had also filed a federal charge of transportation of a minor across state lines for criminal sexual intercourse, which carries a minimum 10-year sentence.

Siskiyou County authorities held Cummins on a fugitive arrest warrant for aggravated kidnapping issued out of Maury County, Tenn.

Detectives spoke to the girl Cummins reportedly kissed on January 31, and she told them she had a "verbal exchange" with another teacher at the school before she went to Cummins' classroom, the complaint said.

The Associated Press is not naming the girl because she is an alleged victim of a sex crime.

Cummins considered trying to cross into Mexico by land and also bought a small watercraft and tried a test run to cross into Mexico from San Diego, according to the court documents.

Cummins, who appeared at an arraignment in Sacamento, walked into court wearing an orange prison jumpsuit that said "Sac Co prisoner" and he was shackled with a chain around his waist.

Tad Cummins, wanted in the kidnapping of a 15-year-old former student, is seen in a photo released March 17, 2017, by the Tennessee Bureau of Investigations.

"He couldn't stand the thought of her being out there alone and him not knowing she was safe", she said. At that time, authorities said they suspected Cummins, a former Culleoka Unit School health science teacher, had abducted her. He surrendered without incident and has been cooperative with investigators.

Griffin Barry said the pair told him their names were John and Joanna and that they needed money for food, gas and a place to stay, ABC News Good Morning America reported Friday.

Since day one, the family has said they care about Elizabeth's well-being above all else; they haven't been concerned with Cummins and what might happen with him.

Cummins, who was sacked one day after the alleged kidnapping, had allegedly researched teen marriage online, specifically the age of consent, according to law enforcement officials.

Elizabeth and Cummins were both wearing "casual clothing", Lopey says. Thomas has since been returned home to her family.

Two days after the girl disappeared, surveillance images from a Walmart in Oklahoma City showed Cummins and the girl purchasing food items in the store with cash. "And very jittery", her father Anthony Thomas said on "Primetime Justice with Ashleigh Banfield" on HLN.

"He's done this terrible thing that he has to pay for, but he's still my brother and I love him", Quinn told NBC News.
